Every year gamers are graced with a new WWE video game, just like we’ve become accustomed to for every game series out of EA Sports, and THQ announced a few months ago that they’d be ditching the old and visually-tiresome SmackDown vs. Raw moniker in favor of the new title WWE ’12.

While the name change and is great, it’s the final reveal of WWE ’12‘s roster that everyone really wants to see. Every year, fans of the WWE brand name and video games alike speculate on which Superstars will make it into this year’s annualĀ installment, and every year some fans are disappointed while others are overjoyed to learn which of their favorite wrestlers made the cut.

THQ held a WrestleMania-sized event for the reveal of WWE’12‘s roster this Saturday, and they announced that a grand total of 60 Superstars (including legends and divas) will occupy the game’s roster when it launches this November. Without further ado, I give you the entire roster of WWE ’12.

Even with the entire game’s roster revealed, THQ still went on to detail their first planned DLC for WWE ’12. The first bit of downloadable content will be none other than Jerry “The King” Lawler, and he’ll be available the same day that the game body slams onto store shelves.

THQ has teased that there will be plenty more Superstars made available via DLC in the near future, so hopefully Superstars such as Shawn Michaels, Brett Hart, Randy Savage, and more will all become available for a reasonable sum in the very near future.

WWE ’12 will be available on Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii on November 22.

What do you think of this year’s roster? Which Superstars past and/or present do you think should be in WWE ’12?
